Toronto’s second annual Green Toronto Festival - twice as big, twice as green
  
Toronto’s second annual celebration of all things green - the Green Toronto Festival - will take place on Tuesday, June 12.

Date: Tuesday, June 12
Time: 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Location: Nathan Phillips Square

The day-long celebration will transform the Square into a sea of green as Torontonians from across the city mingle with more than 80 exhibitors of green products and services. The exhibits will open at 10 a.m. At noon, host Michael Kuss, CityNews Meteorologist, and Councillor Paula Fletcher will officially kick off the celebration.

“The Festival is all about helping the people of Toronto go green,” said Mayor David Miller. “It’s an opportunity to learn about the many programs, products and services offered by the City and other organizations, that will help us live more environmentally friendly lifestyles. I encourage all Torontonians to attend the event and do what they can to go green at home, work and on the road.”

“Residents will find information about all kinds of practical actions they can take in their everyday lives, from simple things like switching to energy efficient lighting, to more complex things like installing solar panels and green roofs and everything in between,” said Councillor Paula Fletcher. “There’s something for everyone at the Festival.”

Rounding out the celebration will be Chris McKhool, Toronto’s own eco-troubadour, in concert, and performances by Earth Rangers, and students from Humewood Community School.
